Frederik's Church, Copenhagen
(4.4/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
Commonly known as the Marble Church, Frederik's Church is an Evangelical Lutheran church with the largest religious dome in Scandinavia. Construction began in 1749, but due to financial troubles and unfortunate circumstances, the church remained unfinished until 1894. From the outside, the Baroque architecture is reminiscent of St. Peter's Basilica in Rome. Make a quick stop inside to view the decorative lining of the dome, which spans 31 m (101 ft). Entry is free, but on certain days of the week you are allowed to pay a fee to climb to a viewpoint where you can enjoy bird's-eye views of the whole city. Check the website for further information, and for dates and times of services if you would like to worship.

  • It is a very beautiful church that impresses on the outside. The entrance is free. You have option to go up to the dome. He is very close to the Royal Palace, is a must-see.

  • Magnificent church! Very beautiful architecture elements outside and inside. very big space inside, so you can walk in and see all the beauty! Near the Church you have beautiful square! 
  • Looked at from a water bus on the way to the statue of the Little Mermaid, but looked small at that time. But walk, take a close look and think big! A unique appearance was impressive.

  • If you are at Amalienborg either way you should visit. It's beautiful and free. The view from the top should be lovely.
  • Beautiful church! Also inside! Great cultural building! Advise to visit!
  • Beautiful church. The main entrance is from the south, at the end of the street that runs north from Amalienborg Palace. Worth a 10-15 minute visit. The interior is reminiscent of the Parthenon.
  • Very beautiful church. A good spot to relax and meditate when life gets to be too much. Postcards of the interior/exterior are available for purchase in the vestibule of the church. Quite overcrowded with tourists at mid-day.
  • A must visit! Very beautiful from the outside as well the inside. I love Churches and Cathedrals!
